Coronation Street star Catherine Tyldesley appeared on Zoe Ball on Sunday and delighted fans with her choice of attire – she wore a white and red striped dress by Topshop, which retails at a purse-friendly £49. The elegant dress is made in a flowing fabric and showed off the Coronation Street actress’s slim figure and it also featured voluminous cape sleeves for added va-va-voom. The diagonally placed stripes gave it both a statement and contemporary edge, and the pretty blonde actress added obligatory nude high heel shoes from ASOS. The 34-year-old wore her blonde hair slicked back in a ponytail and accentuated her big eyes with smokey eye makeup. The actress’s gorgeous look was put together by talented stylist-to-the-stars Martine Alexander – the professional who also turns works with Kym Marsh Lucy-Jo Hudson and Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington.
